Well, that one (and two other long-stalled projects) is finished! Keep an eye on Under Glass.

Thanks Guys, have a few more photo's of today's progress, didn't get a lot done had to do some stuff on my mom's '93 Buick (Plug's, Plug Wires and a Fuel Filter) so I was a bit busy, anyway, made some pulley's, made a fan belt from a old elastic, added a Cast metal Alternator bracket and parts box Alternator, also painted up some more stuff. Still lots to modify, adjust, touch up and much more.

Now that the Chevelle is finally done, I can get back to the T-bird. I finished up the engine this afternoon. It's plumbed and wired and ready to go in.

I really thought that this Community Build would be way more popular than this!

Anyway, here's where I'm at with the grille/bumper. I decided to separate it. Easier to detail that way. I'll be sending the bumper in for plating this next week or so.

That is mostly my fault. I started this to jump start myself and get me working on my stalled projects. But alas, this year has not been good for bench time. I'm currently finishing up a move and should be getting the workshop set up in a couple of weeks. I HAVE to finish up my Cannonballer so I'll be getting this CBP rolling again even if I'm the only one posting.

I've been having similar things.No time this last few months, Still want to get my '32 5 Window finished among the rest on my list.

Nick

Soon it will be too cold to put full days in on my 1:1 Model Project (at least that's the way I look at it) and I'll be back at the bench.

The pics don't show it well but that there is Testors One Coat Lacquers - White Lightning, straight from the can over white Krylon primer. This is the first time I've used it and I must say I'm impressed. It has an excellent shine. After a couple days it's getting BMF'd and the flame decals from the Revell 49 Merc. Time to get moving on the interior.

I'm also plugging away on the Jolly Roger gang so expect more soon.

Okay, I might join in for this one, I have MANY stalled projects and I'd really like to finish them. The list of what I will be building in this thread, but don't hold your breath with these, they will take long time.

-'56 Chevy Lead Sled
-'34 Ford Pickup
-RAMCHARGERS AA/Fuel Dragster
-'32 Ford Bonneville Racer
-'32 Ford Funny Car
-'40 Ford Hot Rod

That's it for now. I will post pictures of how they are looking now soon.

Happy to be here. :lol: Some great builds in this thread, keep 'em coming!

I will post pictures of the builds I'll be building. The First one I'll post here is '32 Ford Bonneville Racer. I'm building it from glue bomb Ford and it will have Flathead V8. It's chopped, sectioned and channeled so far, that tracknose is from Revell '29 Ford Pickup kit.

It is stalled because of interior, which needs to be sectioned too. :wacko:

I was also thinking of shortening the nose a bit. Now it looks like Freight Train to me. :lol:
